As this post goes live I will be en route to Lima, Peru. I can’t believe it’s really happening! This summer seemed to go by on fast forward and this trip just snuck up on me. I wish I could have pressed pause on life and enjoyed just a little more time at home before leaving, but I seem to have lost my remote control.
I actually planning this departure date specifically to fit around another very special event on my calendar, the wedding of my dear travel friend Justine and her now-husband Ben. Those who have been reading since the pre-Wanderland days will remember Justine as my partner in crime on my first trip to Thailand. From the moment I first heard her sassy South African accent in Bangkok to the moment I stood up as a bridesmaid in her wedding, she’s been a special, dear friend. This wedding deserves a post of its own, at some point.
The week since has been a whirlwind of packing, post-scheduling, and preparing for departure. Believe it or not — I don’t quite seem to, yet — next week’s Photo of the Week will come to you from deep in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon.
